Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles 30 vs. 60 FPS Comparison
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles was updated to add support for 60 FPS, but is the mode worth it?
Sega added this new frame rate mode with an update to the game that was released on November 24. The patch should be available on all current-generation consoles so you get the benefit of 60 FPS on the new generation hardware, but not the old one just to clear any confusion.
How To Enable 60 FPS Mode In Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles
First, make sure you have updated the game to the latest version on PS5 or Xbox Series. On the title menu before pressing start, you can access the options menu. Go for the last option regarding the frame rate and pick between the 30 and 60 FPS mode depending on your preference. Do keep in mind that the 60 FPS mode won’t work in the whole game as explained by Sega.
60fps Mode Added
Also in this update, a new “60fps mode” has been added to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Steam versions of the game. Within this mode, the controllable sections of exploration and combat in Story mode and certain controllable sections in the offline Versus mode will be playable in 60fps.
What sacrifices have been achieved to reach this mode? Based on our comparison, it appears that resolution might be the only visual sacrifice here. You lose the pristine IQ of the native 4K resolution and switch to a dynamic 4K. Even then, this one holds up rather well that it is hardly noticeable.
The 60 FPS mode is great if you enjoy playing the game offline, either in the story mode, challenges, or versus mode. It works out well and makes the combat flow smoother. Unfortunately, it won’t apply to the online multiplayer which could have been improved with a higher frame rate reducing the input lag.
